US Cattlemen’s Tour Focusing On Defense Of COOL

U.S. Cattlemen Association leaders are touring the Dakotas and Montana the next couple of weeks focusing on defense of Country of Origin Labeling. Recently the group joined others in intervening in a lawsuit to defend the measure. 9 meat groups are trying to get the law thrown out and are plaintiffs in the case. Cattlemen’s Executive Director Jess Peterson says during their tour they’ll be asking for funding support for their case to help defray legal expenses.

Peterson feels they have a good case in defending USDA’s rewrite of the COOL regulation because the original WTO ruling upheld consumers right to know where their food comes from.

The tour is running now through August 29.
